From traditional hymns to Negro spirituals… from Anthems to Gospel favorites.
“His arrangements shed new light on the songwriters lyrics while making way for his marvelous vocal ability to breathe freshness and joy into every word. The result is a pure celebration in song that attests to God’s love and power presented by an artist who gratefully acknowledges Him as the source of his musical gift.” – Wepraise.com
Dedicated to Nhojj’s parents, “Coming home” revisits Nhojj’s gospel roots exploring faith, hope and love with songs penned over the span of 300 years. From traditional hymns to Negro spirituals, from anthems to gospel favorites, this album gives testimony of God’s enduring love. Together with producer Sam Archer (Barbershop Movie Soundtrack) they crafted everything from the majestic “It is Well” to hand-clapping rendition of “Mary Don‘t You Weep” and the reggae flavored “His Eye is on the Sparrow”.
*Nhojj toured 26 cities throughout England, USA, Canada and the Caribbean for 8 months in support of Coming home.
